There has been a lot of speculation about this within the Patriots organization. Everybody is wondering what tight end Rob Gronkowski is going to do in regards to the 2019 season. Will he stick around another year? Will he ride off into the sunset of retirement? Well, we might have our answer very soon.
Rob Gronkowski’s agent Drew Rosenhaus on NFL LIVE on his future in the NFL: “He’s thinking it through, he’s giving it a lot of thought… I imagine a decision will happen in the next couple of weeks.”

Could He Want Another Super Bowl Run?
Gronk has three Super Bowl rings to his credit thus far in his career. But, whose to say he doesn’t want a chance at a fourth one?

What Does This Mean?
This would be interesting to say the least. Gronk could come back and help the Patriots offense be very good once again in the 2019 season. They were one of the top overall offenses in the league in 2018 and look to have most of their pieces back in place for the 2019 season as well. Gronk is as dependable as anybody in the NFL when it comes to actually catching the ball and he is a very good blocking tight end as well.
What Happens If He Retires?
Along with being one of the best tight ends in the NFL, Gronk also has one of the most lively personalities ever. He could be an actor in Hollywood or get into the WWE if he really wants a second career after football. Gronk really doesn’t have much more to prove on the field. His multiple back surgeries have also been a burden to him too.
I really hope Gronk doesn’t retire. I personally think he has a few good years left in the tank. He still is a nightmare matchup for safeties and DB’s because of his size and for linebackers and linemen because of his speed. Also, there are rumblings going around with Odell Beckham Jr. almost coming to the Patriots.
